Quartz Experience Center

The Quartz Experience Center is located on the border with Mol and showcases the history of the sand industry. At this unique interactive museum, with its beautiful garden, you can learn more about the diverse applications of quartz sand.


Roll up your sleeves and find out all about sand extraction company Sibelco, the applications of quartz sand, the production process and how quarries have been repurposed, all in an exciting way. The museum includes a timeline, a mineral treasure room, some do-it-yourself tests and many, many pictures and videos.


Tip: wander through the beautiful garden at the waterfront of the former sand quarry! This partly public park overlooking the lake is also the starting point for De Maat hiking area.
